Some Readers Comments:
Here is a review from Michelle Wanasundera and her daughter, Amali.
- ‘Clover’s Big Ideas’ is a very gentle and sweet story, but has a strong message – to trust in yourself no matter what others say. My daughter and I really enjoyed reading this book together and it gave me an opportunity to discuss issues such as bullying and exclusion.
- ‘I really really liked it, is she making another one? Because I loved it, but she doesn’t have to write another one, I was just wondering. I love Clover’s smile! Makes me want to kiss her, and see her.’

About the Author: Georgie Donaghey
Georgie discovered her love for creative writing at the age of seven. Apart from the colourful tales, she would entertain her classmates and peers with, Georgie entered and won her first competition. Although her hand written award from the Sun Herald Junior writing competition is now faded and the poem she submitted a distant memory, her passion for writing developed into an obsession.
She has written several picture books and a few children’s novels waiting to be shared with the world. Georgie has also tried her hand at an adult murder mystery. One short story for adults was published in the Heat Anthology of short stories published in 2014.
As President of the Children’s Book Council of Australia Sutherland branch, Georgie helped educate her local community and renew their love for the adventure of the written word. Shortly before the birth of her third child, Georgie stepped down from the CBCA.
From her supposed ‘quiet’ time Georgie’s dedication to helping other emerging authors was never far from her mind. Unable to find the one place on the internet where emerging children’s authors could find tips, information and at the same time display their work, her imagination went into overdrive. In November 2011 Creative Kids Tales was launched. A website designed by emerging children’s authors for emerging children’s authors.
She even took her love of writing to the airwaves with The Author’s Shelf via community radio.
Georgie is just like any other emerging author – full of passion and hopeful that her books will sit on bookshelves other than her own.
In 2015 Georgie’s first picture book, Lulu was published. Her second book with Little Pink Dog Books, In the Shadow of an Elephant will be published in late 2018.
